Brussels Airlines asks: “What about transit passengers from the UK?”

The largest airline operating out of Brussels Airport in Zaventem, Flemish Brabant wants answers from Belgium’s Federal Government on what it is to do with passengers from the UK due to transit via Zaventem. A good portion of Brussels Airlines’ passengers, including many from the UK transit through Brussels Airport. However, the ban on people entering Belgium from the UK means that all flights from Britain to Belgium have that were scheduled for today have been cancelled. 

This is despite a large portion of those that were due to fly on the cancelled flights being transit passenger that were simply going to change planes at Zaventem and then continue their to their final destination in a third country.

Brussels Airlines’ Kim Daenen told VRT News that “It is unclear whether they can come here from Great Britain. This is important for us because the majority of passengers on the UK flights, 75% even, transit on to one of our African destinations. We hope to learn more today”.
